Matt Lamarand

Focus Based Dog Trainer

Founder Matthew Lamarand is a former United States Air Force Explosive Detection Dog Handler Veteran and Secret Service K9 Handler for president Obama. While working with a local dog training company, he found that the dogs he worked with were obedient to the collars and treats, not the owners. As a result, he started Dogology University to help people raise their perfect canine partners, and move away from reliance on collars and treats as training tools.
